HyperDrive USB-C Docking Station Integrates HDMI and DisplayPort into One Pocket Hub

Many USB-C hubs have HDMI ports, but far fewer include DisplayPort. The HyperDrive USB4 mobile docking station offers both. And more.

The HyperDrive USB4 Mobile Docking Station offers ports for HDMI and DisplayPort, giving users additional options for an external monitor. And the newly launched USB-C hub also includes two USB-A ports, Ethernet and more.

And it all fits into a package not much larger than a Magic Mouse.

HyperDrive USB4 mobile docking station offers 7 additional ports for MacBook or iPad

Hyper calls its latest product an “incredibly thin and ultra-portable connectivity solution.”

The collection of ports starts with HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4. But Hyper warns: “Extended dual displays are only supported on Windows devices that support MST, not supported for macOS. Still, Mac users can carry a hub that supports HDMI or DisplayPort, if not at the same time.

A pair of USB-A ports each provide 10 Gbps for transferring photos, files or videos.

The HyperDrive USB4 mobile docking station offers a Gigabit Ethernet port (10/100/1000 Mbps) for situations where Wi-Fi is too slow or too insecure. And there’s a 3.5mm combo audio jack for speakers or headphones.

All of this fits into a 3.3-inch square and 0.76-inch thick product, not including the USB-C cable. It weighs 0.24 pounds.

The HyperDriveUSB4 Mobile Docking Station is available now from the Hyper website. The price is $139.99.

MacBook users who want more external displays should look to the HyperDrive 4K Multi-Display Dock instead. It can handle three 4K displays and combines HDMI and DisplayPort.
